Screening Broad Jump
The Standing Broad jump is part of the Performance Plus Assessment and screening series. The standing broad jump is similar to the standing vertical jump and is tested at the NFL Combine as a premier metric for power and speed-strength. To test, simply stand on a marked line with your feet pointing forward with the toes on the line. Jump. The final measurement is done at the heels, not the toes – so it’s from your toes at the starting position and the back of the heel at the landing position. Test this 2-5 times until you get your maximum distance, then record it for future use.
